Sammanfattning

The linkages between climate change and sustainable development are multiple and profound. Nonetheless,
their respective policy regimes have so far evolved along parallel, if not competing, paths. What is lacking to date
is a detailed conceptual understanding of the practicability of their integration through cross-sectoral policies
and programmes. We propose a synergistic adaptive capacity (SAC) framework that places adaptive capacity and
equity at the centre of current policy debates. This framework, based on social vulnerability as a linking element
between climate change adaptation and poverty reduction, goes beyond current attempts to ‘mainstream’ adaptation
and mitigation into national development priorities. We outline guidelines on how to operationalize the SAC
framework and, at the end, define the role of the EU in promoting and implementing these synergies within the
post-2012 climate policy regime.
